Sexual assault is a worldwide issue that has affected colleges and universities for years. Regardless of the barriers, given the seriousness of sexual misconduct and the prevalence of sexual misconduct on college campuses, more should be done to address the issue. The purpose of this study is to investigate the current knowledge of sexual misconduct and Title IX among the community members of a faith-based university. The results of this study could make significant contributions to practice and policy by providing useful information for Title IX offices and designated coordinators. This study was analyzed as a descriptive study, and used a cross-sectional survey to investigate the current knowledge of sexual misconduct and Title IX among the students. The data provided evidence that the students who participated in the study were mostly knowledgeable about Title IX; however, there were still some areas that they did not understand. The results also show that the students want and need more activities on campus to participate in. The results from this study should encourage faith-based universities to start talking about sexual assault and Title IX on their campuses more often.
